  • Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    discreet and light weight, very sharp, good colors and contrast
    slow AF, nothing else for the price

    Very useful all around focal (just in case) with a tele on the body.

  • Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    excellent IQ
    some focus hunting in low light

    A big cons is the lack of IS but not for macro work, for portraits.
    Only for macro is just perfect.

  • Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    excellent IQ even at f2.0 (colours, contrast, sharpness, bokeh, 3D effect); useful IS; very very good AF; very good built quality; excellent close-up capability
    high coma in night shots at f 2.0 and 2.8, not the best f2.0 resolution

    This 35 is now my favorite walk around lens on my 5D MKII.

  • Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    excelent IQ, light weight, very good IS and finally but not the last excellent IQ :)))
    the hood could be better, slipping focus but after service it's ok

    Image is excellent at all focals starting from f4. Close up image (at MFD) is very good, except at 135-200mm on my copy. For this situation I use only 70-100mm.
    The slipping focus is history now after free service.
